One of the newer hostels in the colonial area of Cartagena de Indias, in Gethsemane. The Media Luna Art Hostel is located in a colonial house with a large yard and pool. It's more expensive than other backpacker hostels (about 7€ for a shared room), but it is the price you pay for a pool. It is a good place for those who like to party, and every night the courtyard becomes a United Nations type place where the beer flows in abundance. It has a very nice restaurant.
